  • It's ok

    I expected more given the price and the brand. Picture quality is good, but the back and task buttons are placed such that they are often accidentally pressed, which has not been my experience with 2 prior tablets. Processor speed is fair, sound ok, battery life is great. Could have spent less and received better value with another brand.

    I bought this tablet a couple of years ago. (It is the 2015 version so I hope they have since got the bugs out.) It started, after havjng the tablet just the past year warranty, with the tablet randomly rebooting itself every few days. Later, it would reboot over and over again before, finally, starting up. Then it started getting stuck in reboot. After trying all tricks I could do I wiped my tablet to factory reset. For fear it may have been caused by something I picked up, I did not reload all my info back to my tablet which meant looking all my pics, etc. That was fruitless because the problem still exists!!


  • Was expecting a much better product for this price

    I own 3 of these, essentially because there are no meaningful competing product in this price range. The plus side, battery last long enough. The most disappointing aspects are the processor which is definitely too slow and doesn't meet expectations also aggravated by the sluggish Samsung layer over the Android OS. One of them has been in the repair shop for the last 3 weeks for defective hardware and they can't seem to find a fix for it... I sure hope that there will be serious competitors to these as I would like to own something else than a Samsung product with cleaner OS...
